CNN Correspondent Rosa Flores reported that some of the 11,000 migrants waiting in Mexican shelters to enter the United States are fully aware that they do not qualify for asylum in the U.S.

However, influenced by the experiences of other migrants, they still plan to seek asylum, believing they can cross the border, claim asylum, and be released into the U.S. interior while awaiting their asylum hearing.

“Now, back to those 11,000 migrants in northern Mexican cities, one shelter director telling me that some of those migrants know that they don’t qualify for asylum in the U.S. But asylum is the law in the United States,” Flores said.

“And so, many of them are still trying to enter the United States and plan to seek asylum, many of them blinded by the videos and voice messages that they’ve received from other migrants who have crossed the border, turned themselves in to immigration authorities, and have been released to American communities.”
